Col j a Cember Cornea u it always does before we Are quite ready to bid it is Levass. Soma of Tom roots Are till a the Grood and there boy Muat lie till Spring unless we have a Libaw. The Days Are now shortest kind and not mob can be Dona by the Farmer or the Mechanic Una sea Ibey Tise Early and Continuo their labor till late in evening. Some Farmers have Corn pulled in their barns to be hosted in the Winter evenings when nothing better can be done. Many Farmers have Learned How to Peg shoes and they obtain through the Winter better wages than formers can afford to pay. Thia a All Well. Labourer who have been employed through the Winter Are much bet Able to perform through the summer than such As have been Idle in the Winter months. We would caution our friends against hiring through the summer any Man who had been Idle through the Winter. Cattle must have something to eat whether or not the Fields Are Able to yield any support. We hire had a favourable month now past and we have hop a that we May have u Supply of fodder for Winter consumption though Hay seems to be scarce if we took at the prices which Are obtained in the markets. Potatoes an j other Roou Nave Yie Taeu Well Ami these with the Corn fix filor and Brook Meadow Hay must be relied on to Aid up in the wintering of Stock. Farmers will now be careful and waste none of their Means of feeding. It some times happens that we Are Short in the Prius when in the fall we thought we had an abundant Supply. On the contrary by prudent feeding and Good management we find Hay a the Market at lower Price i i april than in the previous december. If you tie up your cattle by the head see that they Are All fed and equally other Wise the Lucky one or m Uter cattle obtain mar thu la in Char. Us a m Derlinga of a suitable Supply for supper. Hired labourers sometimes neglect to shake no the Hay Loose before the cattle and every third animal is found Short of food. This u one reason Why cattle which run Loose through the Yard a Winter and eat trom the Racks c3ine out in better Condi Tion in the Spring than such As Are tied fast to a stanchion. Regularity in feeding g a All important in regard to All animals. If cattle Are left to Pine on half allowance and pig Are left to squeal for their breakfast and dinner the h go Price of pork Wal n t Avail the farm or he must borrow Money to pay his hired " help if that May be called kelp which Only help to squander his sustenance. Farmers look to your own concerns other Wise Yon will be pretty sure that they will be neglected. Let not a Sparrow fall with out your knowledge. Let not a cow go without milking because your leading hired my would rather have you buy milk in november than to be at the trouble of drawing it from the cows when the cold weather reduces Tho Quantity and when it is an easy matter to dry them up. I Ork brings a pries a me i nikkei and Why should it not ? Grain h u Boon High through the Teuton and pork cannot b Wall Fottos without it. Cunning Farmer have avoided keeping Breeding hogs on account of the Scarcity of rain. Now Thor fore they mail expect to pay a High Price for pigs. He of continue High and there Are not Many food to be spared. All kind of produce might be expected to Bear a High Price while More than a million of Warrior in Europe Are to be fed from the produce of the toil. Should the ground continue Bare the word Houi should be tilled by Farmer with the fallen limb and ships. And Apple tree trimming that will be wanted if they Are not pick i up. Even the Farmer May find much rubbish on his ground that is not fit for anything but the fire. Pick up the fragments and let nothing be ploughman. Cattle Bocc disc. U is stated in he London quarterly review that the it oct of sir Robert Peel s Tariff in a Leahing the duty on the introduction of live Stock into England in 1844, a to revolutionize the character of dutch and darned farm ing.

There is a sufficient Quantity Falls however unless in seasons of sex ireme drug to to give every Farmer a full Supply if he had the proper reservoirs for holding it. The a May be made much More readily and cheaply than most peo ple believe they can be. On any soil but a very Sandy one the Earth May be removed nod the sides and Bottom cemented without Brick or Stone and the top covered with Chestnut Plank and any amount of rain water preserved. If slanted outward half an Inch to one Inch to each foot in height and Well cemented a Cistern will last for Many years. Such cisterns would be a matter of Economy to May of oar Farmers. We find a paragraph a the papers which has suggested these remarks stating that every melt of rain that Falls on a roof Tuuu two barrels to every space feet Square and seventy two barrels Are yielded by the annual rain in this climate on a similar sur face. A barn thirty by forty feet yields annually eighth Hundred and sixty four barrels this is enough for More than two barrels a Day for every Day in the year. Many of our landlords have at least five times that am Oaut of roofing on their dwellings and other buildings yielding annually More than four thousand barrels of rain water or about twelve barrel or about one Hun dred and fifty Ordinary pail fulls daily.

He had found shallow boxes containing not More than three layers of fruit Vor convenient for this purpose. Tho temperature should be 56" to co fur secur ing the very Best Quality if Wanner they would mature sooner but at the expense of flavor. He regarded the subject As one of great importance inasmuch As the flavor of Winter pears depend still More upon the ripening process. H. E. Hooker had found that caution was needed that the fruit does not receive a taint from the Wood of the Box or drawer in such close confinement and that open shelves would be better.

Accordingly the Salo was re commenced with special Eye to his pocket and a watch a handsome Gold one with Chain etc., was quickly passed about from hand to hand among the assembled confederates until it reached the mayor who quietly bid $20, and found it knocked Down to him.

I be a Nat ral born hatred to All constables. What business had to there i d like to know 1 True enough cried one of Tho girls an old married Man Why Don t he stay at Home with Hia wife and children 1 no body wants him ii declare to Man said Salina it made my blood bile to Seo him sneaking about with Bis hands in his pockets whist Ling to himself As if nobody was by of i hate a Constable like rank Poison. They always put me in the mind of old limes when i was a Young girl a year or two ago Here Iho girl looked at each other none of item remembered the Lime when she appealed a Day younger than now. Well a i a rating when i wan a Gal my father and Mother moved from Connecticut into the Locawana Valley in Pennay Lavuia with Little children All younger than myself. They had lost every thing and went out into that dark Piny re Gion to begin life agin. Well they got a Patch of wild land partly on credit built a log House and went to work. Before the year waa out father died and we found it hard dragging to get along without crop and deep in debt. We gave up everything to pay store debt and we should have Felt Rich As Kinga if we could Only have rated what the Law allowed us. But we had no barrel of beef and pork which even the Law leave to the poor family but we lived on Rye and injun with a Little molasses when we could t got milk 1 the Law allowed a two pig and a cow her half. Our cow waa a grand Good i Lite a phial for milk and gentle a a Lamb you Don t know How the children look to her and Well they might Ahe More than half supported item. Marm did her beat for the children and i worked w hard a Abe did spinning and carding the Wool which Ahe wove into cloth on a band loom. 1 Well in a year or two the calf grew into a Heifer and we calculated on having milk from her after a Little. So we began to fallen of the old cow though i Han t no idea that we should Ever have made of our minds to kill her. Inert Wui Torao leu uni to Niibu Jien up every thing once and neither marm nor i thought of any body s coming on in agin. So we were proud enough of oar two oops and As Long As Tho children had plenty to eat never thought of beef and the old cow might have lived to Thia time for what i know if we had been left to our Here Salina a voice became disturbed and the Girla settled themselves in an Atti tude of profound attention. Well As i was saying things began to brighten with As when one Day in came the town Constable with a printed writ in his hand. 1 he d found oot that we had Mure than one cow and came for it. I thought poor marm would a gone crazy she Felt so bad and no wonder with All them children and Ahe a Widder. It came hard i Tell Yon. 1 Bat the Constable was determined and i what could Ahe do but Girt of. Then Tood the Little children huddled together on the Hearth crying m if their heart were broke at the Bare thought of having the cow drove off and the waa poor marm with her apron up to her face a sobbing to pitiful i could t Aland it my heart Roee like a Yeasting bread i determined that them Ceil Dren and that hard working woman Aronld Hare enough to eat Constable or no Conata ble. Wait said i to the Oon table till i go drive up the cow Aho s hard to find he Aat Down. Marm and the children began to cry and Job agin. I Tell Yon gala it waa a cruel a the grave. I went to the Wood pile and took the in from Between two Loga. Across the Clear ing and just in the Edge of the Wooda i saw to Ota cow an j bolter browsing on me on Der growth. The old cow had a Bell on and every tinkle As she moved her head went to my heart. I had to think of marm Ana the children before 1 would get courage to go on and with that to cheer me i Shook and trembled like a murderer All the Way across the Clearing. The old now and Heifer were close by each other browsing on the Sweet Birch undergrowth that grow thick there. When i came up they both stopped and stood looked at me with their great Earnest eyes so wistfully As if they wondered which i we after Ilco Salina dashed a hand across Lier Oyes and tha Ocolor rushed into her face of if Aho were opposing a pressure of tear with Groat braver. It was enough to break any one s heart to Aee that old cow with the birth Twig in her Mouth coming towards me so innocent. Sho thought poor old Critter that i d come o milk her but Istead of the milk pail i had that a in my hand. She could t a known it meant and Yot As True As i live it Sec mod As if she did. There Sho stood looking in my Ace won Dering i inn t no doubt who i did t sit Down on a log As usual and fix my pail and there i stood trembling Belore the poor dumb animal ready to fall Down on my Knees and ask Pardon for my cruel thoughts and Tho Lio fur Lookin on us both of gals i gals i Hope none of you will Ever Hare to i go through a thing like that. The girls thus addressed Wero very still and a sob or two was just heard Obilo the tears leaped like bail stones Down Saltan s Cheeks. 1 my heart miss Avo me i would t a done it. Those Grout innocent eyes seemed As if they were human i grow so weak that the ago almost foil. I turned to go Back Tomaj to non Etc of anything rather than look that animal in Tho face again with the axe in my hand Yea i turned away but there half across the cloaking was the Constable with the writ flying out in Bis hand. My blood Rose i thought of the children with nothing to eat i Don t know what i did t think of. He walked last i turned the cow was right before me. Of girls there she stood so quiet chewing the Green Birch leaves i was like a baby the axe would t Rise from the ground i could not do it. Lie called out i heard his step in the underbrush. Then my strength flew Back i was wild Strong is a lion but my eyes seemed hot with Sparks of fire i abut them the ago swung Back a crash a deep wild Bellow and she fell like a log. I had struck in the White Star in her forehead. When i opened my eyes Ahe was looking at me and so her eyes stiffened in their film. I had to hold myself up by the a Helve Wilh both hands. I seemed to me As if i was dying too. What have you been about where is Tho cowl said Tho Constable in a passion Asho came up. There said i pointing to the poor Mur dered Critter with my Finger the Law you say won t allow us two cows but it does give us a barrel of bit. This is our beef touch it if you dare " bitter fbtjit8. It has been frequently asserted that since the Lut state election drunkenness hat greatly increased in this oily. Indeed this act Haa been pain Folly obvious to any one who has had Occa Ion to pass daily through our streets. The police reports show a urge increase during ibis time in the number of my of Iii Kiml brought be Foo the City magistrate. And this he been True not Only among the lower class of our Popula Tion which u supposed to furnish the rest mass of the " drunkards but also among the Young men of respectable connections in our City. It has been publicly Antonno de that within a few weeks past there Bare been taken up in our streets in a state of beastly intoxication and carried before the police court to be dealt with As common drunkards three Young Mso whose parents occupy the first social rank among is but whose fathers have distinguished themselves of late by their determined open and bitter opposition to the Law prohibiting the traffic in intoxicating drinks. A sad foot and a Mournful one yet to one who believe in an overruling and retributive Providence that often visits upon men to this life be consequences of their errors and crimes How lit lie surprising is it. If the Rose who pots the bottle to his son s lips and sets him an 1 example of in Temperance Bas reason to expect Bat son to become a drunkard Bow much less reason he he to anticipate a Sim Ilar result who though a temperate Man in i his own habits yet opposes himself to the wholesome measures that have been adopt and for the prevention of intemperance by i destroying the traffic and who openly a poas Esthe cause of the rum Sellert his i temperate habits and private moral inst Roo Lions will Avail Little against his Publio and i Vocaty of intemperance and immorality. I he who opens the floodgates of destruction upon the Community May not expect that i Hie own shall escape the consuming tide. The fact that these Young men the sons of these fathers were taken Opas above elated did not Surprise As. It waa Bot Jaal what to had anticipated. On the evening of the last election Jay As we used thro the Street we came to a body of men As ambled to listen to congratulatory speeches upon the revolts of the Day s work. Judging from those around where we stood we thought that at least three fifths of that Assembly were More or Lesa under the influence of liquor. A we approached a speaker was addressing the crowd. Lie waa a Man put Middle life one whom from our boyhood we had known and highly re spooled a Man of High social arid professional standing of amiable Chara Clor and exemplary life. He waa Coop tabulating the Assembly upon the results of the elec Liou especially As Alfe Oiin Ihu re a lion. He praised those before him a Large portion of whom were intoxicated for the Noble stand they had taken and the Noble Effort they had made in defence of their " rights comparing them to the Valbera of Lur revolution and encouraged them to son Tiute in the defence of their right to use and sell ardent spirits. He evoked their indignation against Elliote men who sought o dicta to to them what they should or should not buy sell and drink. We listen so for awhile As be proceeded with a string f platitudes and the Moat Trio and com non place phrases of the demagogue. Sido from its sentiments it seamed to us Ibe weakest and most discreditable speech hat we Ever heard from an educated Man n a Public Effort. The Speakar Wai out of Lis element and could not Well act the part 10 had assumed. He Wai speaking again t j ight and As we thought against con-1 science and could not but be weak. As the shouts or Drunken applause went in around i and As we thong he of Iho to Lilion of Flo ape kor an 1 of lie Aland and influence with reaped to Tho moral welfare of society which in View of his character and abilities we had a right to expect of him to turned away sick at heart and with lad reflections. We thought of the irn sense evil which a parti in spirit waa Lead no that Inan to do of i own Aona be Ore whom with Moat a paternal Zeal he 4 slaving to array tenfold temptation at who it Foet he their father was digging the Atal pitfall. And we s Rovo to conceive the if Turo of his reflections it hereafter he should be compelled to look upon those ions consuming before his eyes by a Torch if Limowe kindling crushed beneath an Avalanche that with insane hand he him self had set Loose upon them. As we Houghto him. Defiantly Labouring to reject a i radio All of who fruits have been evil and on which Tho Curie of god Tonani Estly rests we were reminded of the Fate of j him who food in Defiance of the prohibit lion and Thi cute of heaven would rebuild the ancient City of the Palm Trees.
